Last of the 18 days... NOT the end of the project!

What does the Lord require of you?
Our Micah 6:8 mission is to help support Wholehearted Orphange and Haitian Christian Mission, both financially and by raising awareness. Ultimately, we want to do what the Lord requires of us: Act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.
We’re calling it #themicah68project.
We will begin with an 18 day challenge:
Did you know that much of the world lives on $2 a day or less? Lily Shields, 18-year-old alumna of KCS, current student at Covenant, and daughter of Jeff Shields (one of our middle school math teachers) has spent her last two birthdays raising money and awareness for Wholehearted Orphanage. Last year, she raised enough money to build a beautiful wall around the new orphanage site (over $60,000) and shaved her head! Many of you were involved and donated! This year, she’s doing an 18-day challenge in which she will live like a person in a developing country, living on $2 a day.
We challenged all the middle school kids at KCS to join in an 18-day adventure starting AUGUST 21st:
-For 18 days, we ask you to pray.
-At every meal, keep it simple.
-Sleep on the floor for 3 nights a week with a pillow and a couple of blankets.
-Go without electronics except those needed strictly for schoolwork.
-Only a Bible, a journal, and a few books outside of school books.
-Pick 3 outfits to wear for 18 days.
-Wash your clothes in the sink.
-Pray some more.
Would you donate to KCS Middle School's fund for Wholehearted Orphanage in Haiti? Would you donate $2 for every day your student does the challenge? That would mean if the student does all 18 days, at $2 a day, that would come out to $36.
Not a whole lot to make a huge difference, is it?
